Using drones does make a lot of sense when photographing crop circles from the air - in the past the local airfields profitted from tourism but now such custom will be very much on the decline. The benefits of having a drone, especially one fitted with a night vision camera will now add an extra edge, especially for anyone who will be hoping to capture circle makers on video. The odds of it happening are still pretty low especially if the circle maker avoids the regular locations which are used year after year but there is always a chance.
Over time I think we may even see more nightvision footage of circle makers making their designs with more clarity but that will of course depend on how keen they will be to be filmed.
Farmers and police will now find it easier to fly a drone over a field rather than venturing into a dark field and taking a risk of possible assault. Police drones are also fitted with heat seeking cameras - so a hot sweaty circle maker will glow like a ball of light from a good distane.
Anyway circle makers if you hear a buzz the its time to run and hide. !
Dont say we didnt warn you !
